John Paul Jones Whitehaven

Historic Seaside Location Located in the seaside town of Whitehaven

West of the popular tourist attraction, the Lake District, the John Paul Jones is a traditional, community focused outlet. Occupying an enviable corner position, the pub sits on the road leading to Whitehaven Marina, an area of Whitehaven which underwent heavy investment and boasts newly built apartments and converted historic customs houses. The pub name itself is derived from the U.S. first naval commander who infamously attacked the town in the 1700's. Currently the offer is 100% drinks led with live music played occasionally, providing an untapped business opportunity to overhaul the entire customer offer. There is scope to improve and build this business by re-introducing a strong rhythm of the week, pub games and teams, good entertainment and televised sport at this site. Through the application for a pavement licence, the future operator could make use of the paved area immediately outside the pub, offering a feeling of al-fresco drinks by the marina.

Passionate & Innovative Operator Wanted

Due to the current offer, this site requires a passionate and innovative operator to transform the pub, offering quality drinks, optimum customer service and high standards. Future transformational plans should be detailed in a creative business plan. You must demonstrate business management skills such as people management, financial management and customer service.

In order to ensure a successful start-up, all applicants must have a minimum £10,000 un-borrowed funds.

The Estimated Licensee Fixtures & Fittings (F&F) Value assumes that the pub will be let on a Rolling Tenancy or Business Start-Up Agreement, where we own the majority of the F&F. The F&F Value for Full Repairing & Insuring Leases will be significantly more.

The calculation of the Estimated Minimum Ingoing Costs assumes a minimum deposit of 1 month's rent or £3,000 (whichever is greater) and that fixtures and fittings (F&F) are rented. The subsequent deposit build up and F&F rental costs are not included in the rent model or ongoing costs below.
